Linux.com: An Interview With Donnie Barnes

[ Thanks to Jeff Alami
for this link. ]

Donnie Barnes…is the Director of Technical Projects at
Red Hat Software, coordinating the company’s technical and
community projects…

“Linux.com: Are any of the big hardware vendors getting into
selling Linux desktops as opposed to servers?”

“Donnie Barnes: Not that I know of. Applications sell desktop
systems, not operating systems. Linux certainly isn’t doing bad on
the application side, but your mother probably can’t easily find a
solution for recipe storage and retrieval, either. Once we start to
reach that point I think you’ll see Linux desktops being sold. We
may see that before, but in the `technical workstation’ side of
things.”
